In the Corona Vaccination Ordinance issued by the Federal Government on 29 April 2021, university employees are listed in priority group 3. In the vaccination schedule of the Ministry of Labour, Health and Social Affairs of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (decree of 5 May 2021), a further “fine-tuned prioritisation” is applied within this group; university employees are not yet initially included here in the groups of people who can book a vaccination appointment via the appointment booking systems of the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (Kassenärztliche Vereinigung).
It may well be that RUB embloyees can be vaccinated by their doctors, depending on the availability of vaccines, or to make a vaccination appointment at vaccination centres in other federal states. For this purpose, they can download a form in the RUB service portal to confirm that they work at RUB and therefore belong to priority group 3.
As soon as it becomes possible for university employees to book appointments at vaccination centres in NRW via the Associations of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (Kassenärztliche Vereinigungen), the following applies: If an official employer’s certificate is required for booking appointments at vaccination centres in NRW, it will be immediately available on the service portal.
RUB is also exploring all options to set up an its own vaccination centre on campus in order to start in-house vaccinations in June 2021, if possible. We will notify you in good time as soon as this option takes shape.
